Sjava has finally opened up about the allegations that changed his life completely. Now that the case has been thrown out of court, the musician is ready to open up about how Lady Zamar’s rape accusation affected his life.
Speaking in a candid interview on Mzansi Insider, Sjava said that his career is slowly recovering although his self-esteem is not.
The muso said that he had begun to doubt himself and his role in the entertainment industry.
He went on to say that he would not wish allegations like that levelled against anyone who did not deserve it. The musician said that he will continue trying to heal and move on from the saga. Social media users weighed in on clip of the interview shared on Twitter.
Twitter user Acesotisha said:
“The audacity of you still giving this man a voice and platform is beyond me.”
“That lady was a pawn in the mist of spiritual war, raised by a faction which the lady did a hit song with. Kodwa akusenani Sjava must forgive her and its not the music label as many would think. It’s a spiritual cabal operating in South Africa highly regarded kodwa doti nje!”
“You going heal boza yami.”
“You guys forgot to increase the volume.”
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Gauteng police have confirmed that official charges have been laid against Euphonik and DJ Fresh for allegedly drugging and raping a young woman back in 2011.
Earlier this week, a woman took to Twitter claiming that the two DJs took advantage of her while she was drunk. She claimed that they had drugged her and raped her.
Police authorities have confirmed to TshisaLive that formal cases of rape have been lodged against the two of them.
The woman requested that her identity remains hidden and revealed that the ordeal took place while she was at a party in 2011. At the time, she was a student at the University of Pretoria.
Police spokesperson Capt Mavela Masondo confirmed that a formal case had been opened against the DJs. He said that no arrests had been made.
“As per case the number you provided, I can confirm a case of rape was opened at Sunnyside police station and is under investigation," said Masondo.
The woman said that she was not "stocko" but she simply accompanied a friend to the party and that is when it all took place.
DJ Fresh and Euphonik are both employed by music radio station 94.7. According to EyeWitness News, last year Ntsiki Mazwai claimed that DJ Fresh also sexually assaulted her.
